Looking for an art class for your baby, toddler or child? A place where you can make new friends, have lots of creative fun AND don’t have to worry about the mess?
ARTventurers have been running award-winning art classes for babies, toddlers and children since 2011 and every week hundreds of children join in with our unique brand of colorful, creative (often messy!) fun across the UK!
Painting, modelling, sensory play, exploring, singing and music making…..our colorful, creative classes are interactive and provide a safe and secure environment for your child to explore and create while making new friends.
Fiona – the founder of ARTventurers! My own two (now not-so-little) ARTventurers Erin and Isaac inspired me to start running art classes for children way back in 2008! I loved doing creative and messy activities at home with them and could see how much they learned and gained from the activities that we did together – but I also knew that many of my mummy friends were put off doing arty stuff at home because of the mess, or simply because they didn’t know where to start!
I drew on my own experience and work within the Early Years sector to design a series of colorful, fun art sessions with an emphasis on learning through creative play, exploring different art techniques and materials and developing lots of different skills in a safe, secure and social environment…..and ARTventurers was born! ARTventurers sessions are carefully designed in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and with reference to the Early Learning Goals – we focus on developing fine and gross motor skills, coordination, social and communication skills, problem solving, inspiring imaginations, learning about shapes, colors and the world around us, singing and dancing and creating confident explorers
Over the past couple of years ARTventurers has grown through franchising and we now have a number of branches of ARTventurers running in different parts of the country which is AMAZING, with hundreds of children joining in with the ARTventurers fun each week. It makes me so proud when parents and carers come to us and say how much they love our classes, how they can see the skills and confidence that their children have developed from attending ARTventurers and how they’ve been continuing the arty fun at home too! We have a brilliant team of ARTventurers franchisees and class leaders and assistants who are enthusiastic, creative, full of energy and LOVE inspiring and creating with children every day and we can’t wait for what 2016 has in store for ARTventurers!

What classes do you run?
At ARTventurers we believe firmly in the benefits of free flow creative play for babies, toddlers and young children. We recognise that all children are unique and individual – the layout of our sessions allow children to explore and create… at their own pace, making their own choices and exercising their independence, resulting in a rich, happy and fun learning experience. Our sessions combine free flow play with a structured circle time and social time too.
We run Baby ARTventurers classes for age babies and younger toddlers 6 – 18 months upwards and for older toddlers and pre-schoolers age 18 months to 4 years our Little ARTventurers classes are lively, energetic art classes with a fresh theme each week
